old news:
ONRC asks for you to "DONATE to the Klamath Basin Project" ( their project ) Yet the donation page make no reference to the Klamath Basin, however it does say: "ONRC's Mission:  To aggressively protect and restore Oregon's wild lands, wildlife and waters as an enduring legacy".   Also notice their concern over the other species effected? They also accuse farmers of illegally taking water. Question: how many false and misleading statements appear on this page, any?  see  ONRC Klamath Page
